COVID-19 Update

The Ivy Street team has been doing a lot of work behind the scenes during lockdown to secure funding, develop new partnerships and assess how we can safely start up sessions for local families.

We are currently running Lockdown Babies only under the new lockdown rules. We will open up sessions for toddlers as soon as we can.

We are offering 3 sessions of Lockdown Babies each week, and each session will be limited to 6 families who will need to sign up for a block of 6 sessions. Please be aware that, to comply with best practice, families will not be able to swap sessions and we cannot accept walk-ins.

Adults and children dance around a colourful room catching bubbles. The children reach up in the air and a Dad is holding a baby to see the fun.

Sessions cost £10 for a block of 6 sessions.

Please note that, due to Covid-19, we will not be able to serve drinks and snacks during the sessions. 


Lockdown Babies 10.30-11.30am and 1-2pm

A session for people who have had babies in and around lockdown to meet other parents and talk about the challenges of parenting in a pandemic. 

“I don’t know what I’d do without Ivy Street, my social life would come to an end!”
